This market is intended for locals but still offers an enjoyable insight for travellers who wants to look for tribes people or taste some jungle foods. One section is dedicated to tribes people bringing their goods into town. Most of the market is for locals to buy essentials, and shop for manufactured goods. Lots of yummy fried things for breakfasts... More

I was in Chiang Dao area for 4 months recently, from December 2014 to March 2015. As a result, I had a chance to visit this market at least 4 Tuesday mornings. I REALLY enjoyed it. Like the other reviewers have said, it's an authentic Thailand market, not something designed for tourists - very different from the Night Bazaar or... More

I enjoyed this market because it was educational as well as interesting......there were craftsmen making woven items for sale....at a very reasonable price....everyone was very friendly also....i purchased some very beautiful gifts made by the artist.....a nice place to support local culture from several different hill tribes

I like Thai Markets and this oine takes up most of the High Street through central Chiang Dao. Well worth taking time out to walk round it. Once a week on a Tuesday. It's hot and dusty - there are very few tourist trinkets here - but the Hilltribes visit in their traditional costumes and buy and sell their wears.... More

Having wasted a lot of time looking at "authentic" hill tribe crafts in the tourist markets of Chiang Mai and Chiang Rai, I really found this market enjoyable. It is simply a real market where local people (including the hill tribes) come to buy and sell everything from fresh vegetables, to clothes to hardware. We were here 2 hours and... More

Among all autentic thigs around Chiang Mai, I'm not sure why this market is even mentioned. I planned my 'day-out' around it and it was a great disappointment. The major attraction was the Thai cafe place at the end of it. Just skip it

I didn't see a lot I was interested in buying (except for food -- have a light breakfast). The real value here (for me) was people watching. Especially the hill tribe people who come down for the market. If you haven't seen many Asian markets, it is a sight to see. There are some very interesting things to see even... More

A bustling market with many bargains, frequented by both locals and tourists alike. I personally visited this market many times as I was in Chiangdao for 2 months.
